Going Down Easy by Erin Nicholas


Hot fling or real thing? There are no Big Easy answers in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas’s sultry series.

As far as flings go, single dad Gabe Trahan is pretty sure that Addison Sloan is his best bet. Once a month, Addison comes to New Orleans and then… It. Is. On. Until Addison returns to New York, it’s just hot, happily-no-strings-attached sex. And beignets. And jazz. But lately for Gabe, it isn’t nearly enough.

Sure, maybe Addison’s gotten a bit hooked on Gabe. After all, who can resist a guy who’s so sexy, so charming, and so… available? But maybe he’s too available for her right now. Addison’s just moved to New Orleans, and relationships are definitely off the table. Besides, guys always bail when they learn her secret: she’s a single mom.

Only Gabe’s not running. Worse, he’s thrilled. But Addison never signed up for ever-after romance, and Gabe won’t settle for anything less. Now it’s a battle of wills—and when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, Gabe isn’t above playing a little dirty.

This is the first book in a new series, and I have the next one on my ‘look out for’ list already. This is a lovely read, with a good mix of humour, super-hot chemistry, and a romance with a twist.

I like the premise of the story, and the fact that both of them have to adjust their perspectives and their expectations for the future. It is a very cleverly written book, with some really sweet and heart-rending moments, as well as some very raunchy ones. Given how they started their acquaintance, it is fun to see them work hard to keep that spontaneity and yet at times, just know they have to hold back.

Parents will probably recognise some of themselves in both Gabe and Addison – and the lessons that they both learn by considering each other’s views. It is something that two parents who were always together would probably not even notice, but I liked the dynamic that is created. Some of the humour is just inspired, and really made me laugh.

If you want a cheerful, sexy read, this will definitely work – and you will learn quite a lot about alligators too; I am looking forward to sharing my newfound knowledge!

What's a guy to do when the woman he's been hooking up with moves to town without telling him? What's he supposed to do when she says she doesn't want to have a relationship with him because she's starting over in a new town and she has to take care of her daughter? Gabe's not sure, but he's certainly going to figure it out.

Gabe understands how hard single parenthood can be. He's been doing it for years with the help of his mother and brother. He's found a great support group that he can bounce ideas off of and take comfort in the fact that he doesn't have to have all the answers.

Addison is used to having to be both parents to her daughter. She's never had parents to rely on and Stella's father has never been in the picture. She's taught her daughter independence and the importance of be able to take care of herself. Addison can't help but wonder though what it would be like to have someone to lean on or ask for advice.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are flawed but trying to make the lives of their children better. Addison's realization that she doesn't have to parent Stella by herself is almost as enlightening as Gabe's. Gabe's ability to look at himself the way Addison does causes him to realize that he's relied on his family to shoulder the burden of helping to raise Cooper.

I can't wait to read the next book in this series.



New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas has been writing romances almost as long as she’s been reading them. To date, she’s written over thirty sexy, contemporary novels that have been described as “toe-curling,” “enchanting,” “steamy,” and “fun.” She adores reluctant heroes, imperfect heroines, and happily ever afters.

Erin lives in the Midwest, where she enjoys spending time with her husband (who only wants to read the sex scenes in her books), her kids (who will never read the sex scenes in her books), and her family and friends (who claim to be “shocked” by the sex scenes in her books).
